USB wireless pointer/slide changer stopped working on Fedora 11


Distribution - Fedora 11
Kernel - 2.6.30.9-102.fc11.i686.PAE

I have a USB pointer/slide changer, which was working fine in Fedora 9 and also works fine in Windows or even some old Fedora 2 on a Desktop.

After I did a fresh install of Fedora 11 and updated it with all the new packages, It is no longer working. Here is what output of "lsusb":
======

Bus 007 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0001 Linux Foundation 1.1 root hub

Here is the output of "dmesg" after installing the USB receiver:
======

I have searched net and not found any solution so far. Can anyone point out any possible solution.

Thanks in advance,

If you did a fresh install, why didn't you install the latest Fedora, which is 12?? That would be the first thing I'd try, is to get the latest version of things.

If you've got an older machine that it still works on, can you post the lsusb from it?

Well more than a month back, when I installed, I did not have a FC12 DVD with me. However FC11 is fully updated with all the new packages so there should not be too much difference due to that.
I just started the system from Knoppix CD and tried it out. It works fine. Here are the details:
Distro : Knoppix 5.1, Kernel : Linux Knoppix 2.6.19

Output of lsusb:

No, there actually IS alot of difference between the two.

So apparently, the device is showing up as a mouse/input device. Chances are, the kernel module is different. Again, upgrading to FC12 may fix your problem...or you can try to figure out the differences between the kernel modules, put those changes into the FC11 module, recompile it, and see if it works.

Personally, if it is a fresh installation, it'll take FAR less time to try the current version.
